Judith Miller's Disappearing Conscience
Judy Miller is not so much of a martyr after all. The American Society of Journalists recently announced that Miller would receive its annual "Conscience in the Media," which probably would have meant more to her if it was in the shape of a saw. But not so fast with that book proposal, Judy. The board of the society just took the award back, "based on its opinion that her entire career, and even her current actions in the Plame/CIA leak case, cast doubt on her credentials for this award."
Not fair, is it? She really should get something out of jail besides simply "sore."
